I think if I were the guy who made that I think the last thing I'd want is it reprinted, particularly after a plot against my life was just foiled.

I am Legend. I loved it. I'm not sure how it came to pass, but Will Smith can act and totally sold it for me. And..

While you know full well what's going to happen to the dog before the movie even starts, it still made me want to cry like a girl.

I guess anime doesn't count over the annominity of the interweb so I'll go with the fact that I've started watching pro wrestling again recently. I am more selective than I used to be though and torrent it instead of watching it on tv because for every good match or awesome stunt( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3FUFSDPd3E ) there's two slow uncharismatic wrestlers and 3 horrible backstage skits to fast forward through.

i wonder where there are multiple points of view in tales of legendia ...


It didn't shift perspective directly, but after the main story each character did have a chapter dedicated to them. Storywise this was actually pretty cool. The gameplay, which you're probably tired of by that point anyway, gets absolutely frustrating in these chapters though so I can't recomend the game. Every time you get into a random encounter running through dungeons you already ran through in the main game you'll want to punch a kitten because the enemies, while not hard, just have way too much health for what's supposed to be a fast paced battle system.
695  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst Hero & Villain on: January 09, 2008, 04:07:01 PM
I think the best villains are sympathetic ones. But at the same time, if you try and play the sympathy card and don't deliver the results are horrible and you end up with the worst. So on that note, I'd say the worst of them is Alfina's brother in grandia III. I can't go into great detail because honestly I don't remember the plot that well. But I remember the game really wanted me to give a fuck about him and I just couldn't. And the more they tried without backing it up with any substance the more and more annoyed I got.

 For heroes. Well, I want to say all the Wesley Crusher's of the RPG world:The kids that just don't belong there. But while I want to give the award to one of the Tidus' or Vaans, they aren't the worst.

 The worst is Virginia Maxwell. You just can't put a female as the lead character and then give her every weak jrpg female trait. It's bad enough as a supporting character, but as the leader it just does not work. At all.

I'm going to second a recomendation for odin sphere.

 Other than that the only games offhand I'd recomend you played already with Suikoden III and BoF4. For sake of discussion, while I can't in any fairness recomend a dated NES game, back in the day I loved when dragon quest 4 did it.

 I've loved the concept since DQ4, but often times when games try it they do it for the wrong reason, to make a short game longer, playing through what you've already played through on a new character. And typing this I realize Odin Sphere is guilty of this. But Odin Sphere also does it for the RIGHT reasons, to enrich the story and characters.

Hey shiguma do you know of any good place or page where I could start learning? I only plan to reach the be able to read level thought....


I THINK previously he's said if you really want to learn you have to take classes. And even if it wasn't him who said it, it's still probably the case :P
698  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of Vesperia on: December 31, 2007, 12:50:28 AM
Tales of legendia really made me thing the series was dead at the time. Though I knew part of it was that it was a bad game I also questioned if some of it was just things getting old. I almost didn't get abyss, but a few months after release it had people saying good things about it and I very reluctently got it. And I really liked the game. Sure the series has it's cliches, but the gameplay's fun and the characters as a whole are likeable and the way they interact with each other gives them heart.(Though they can be so silly I wouldn't want someone watching me play. But deep down I like the quirkyness)

 I think as long as they have the sense to port the good ones and not touch the outsourced crap anymore the series still has some life in the US.

The best thing about Seiken Densetsu 3, in my opinion, is the "class" paths that each character can take.


I'm a big fan of systems like it too. Both because if gives your characters bursts in power and because you make choices instead of the 'blank slate' character development, which just ends up with everyone getting everything.

It does kinda suck though when you go out of your way to get the items for your final class and then there's less than a hour left until you beat the game.

I stopped reading closely after the "Devil May Cry 3 is too hard" review.


DMC3 WAS to hard. Well, rather too punishing. Hard is good. I welcome a boss that owns me repeatedly before I kill it. It just sends you back to far when you die, which gets old real fast.

I do kinda feel bad for capcom getting 'this game is too easy!' reviews for DMC2, them listening to the feedback and then getting 'this game is too hard!' for 3 though :P

SII-Classic.
SV-Basically built on the foundation of II means if you like two you'll love it. For the same reason though, relying so strongly on imitation it can't surpass what it's imitating.
SIII-One of those games that seems 'eh' when you first play it, but is really good when you replay it.
SI-Bottom of my list, but I still played it a lot way back when.

SIV I never played. It was bashed so hard. Not just by reviews, but here by people I knew were fans of the series so it seemed like a good idea just to pass on the game.

Nope - Linderman shot him at the end of last season, and he died from that.


It's a assumption that he died from that. Granted, it's a pretty good assumption. But at the same time games, tv, movies and books have all taught me not to trust a death scene unless you see it firsthand because they just love to go back on them.
704  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Heroes discussion on: November 08, 2007, 12:49:49 AM
Yeah, mondays episode was great.

 One thing I was worried about when last season ended was having nowhere to go with the characters who mostly got a lot of closure in season 1. But they've all had stuff going so it's been a good season so far.

 The exception to this being Nikki. Her being there just feels really forced. She ended season one in control so why is she checking in psycho now? Ignoring that plothole how does she go from patient to spy as Mohinder's partner? Hopefully it's just a sloppy start and they have something planned for her.(She said Bob killed DL when Matt's dad was in her head, hopefully he did and that wasn't just part of the illusion)

Man, Benoit was one of my favorites back when I watched wrestling too. Why couldn't X-Pac go on a killing rampage instead :P
